How do you write a useful Lisp application for a thread if you have no
way of displaying any messages?  Besides, some low-level APIs you'd
use in any Lisp will display messages even if your code doesn't.

So some solution for user interaction from threads is still needed, or
else the thread system will not be useful for writing Lisp programs.
